Hello Fork & Cork, Goodbye Taste Addison

Fork & Cork
Addison Cooks Up a New Foodie Fest

by Whitney Filloon


When it comes to food-centric festivals, the city of Addison certainly has plenty to boast of: There’s Oktoberfest, WorldFest and the perennial favorite Taste Addison. Fans of the latter may be slightly disappointed to hear that the annual event won’t be returning in 2014, but Addison is cooking up something totally new that promises to be a big draw for the Metroplex’s serious foodies. Come May, Fork & Cork will replace Taste of Addison as the city’s largest annual food event.

New York Restaurant Trend: Dining at the Bar

by Meryl Pearlstein


Interested in eating at some of New York City’s best restaurants, but put off by the prices? Try dining at the bar! Not only is it less expensive, but the bar or lounge atmosphere is often a more relaxed experience than in the main dining room.

Hungry Houstonians, you’re in luck — you have more dining choices than ever before, as there are many new restaurants worth a visit in Space City. 

At the trendy West Ave. multi-use center in Upper Kirby, two new eateries are now open. Nara, a Korean/Japanese restaurant from chef Donald Chang that opened in the old Katsuya space, blends the flavors of Chang’s native country with his experience as a sushi chef in Houston.
